"It is a powerful hyperobject": Pluto

What a good book this is. Crammed with history, science, philosophy, speculation, mysticism, you name it. It's been published to commemorate the arrival at Pluto of the New Horizons probe.

One of the great features is that the editor, Richard Grossing, asked us to list ten things we would like to or expect to find on Pluto. The lists are like poems and they are whimsical, profound and revealing.

Along with my list of things I'd like to find, there's something by me in it called “The End of the World.”

That phrase in the post title is from the blurb.
